Preparing for Adulthood
As children move into their teenage years it is important that we start thinking about and planning for their Adult lives. This is known as Preparing for Adulthood.
In Portsmouth we want every young person with SEND to have equal life chances as they move into Adulthood. We start to think about what a child might need to support them as an adult, early on. If your child has an EHCP you might find that you start to talk about adulthood from the Year 6 Annual Review.
This section of the Local Offer provides information and services to help prepare a young person for Adulthood and know where you can find support to plan for this.
